Fully furnished. Cozy Living Room, w/ Futon Couch/(extra Bed), complete Eat-In Kitchen. The LR & Kitchen each have a window, + sunlight trickles down the private Spiral Stair. Upstairs, a spectacular Bedroom has ELEVEN windows. Super Location! Try it on for size. We are open to renting our furnished apartments to long term guests at lower rates.
This is a c. 1908 building. There have been over a century of modifications, some fabulous, some not. It has all new storm & screen windows and hardwood floors.
The location is desirable.
Bi-levels are rare and coveted.
The tenants in other apartments in this building are long-term, youngish, and mostly affiliated with Ph.D. programs at U.Penn.
The kitchen is about 20 years old, (clean but not fabulous). There is a new stove. Tthe curtains are "sheers" with basic shades. Those who find dazzling light restorative, will love this place. Those who want "black-out shades" should take something else.
This apartment contains anything a reasonable person would need to live comfortably in a new city. I can provide provide Linens and starter soaps+.
Interaction with guests
Possibly just by text or e-mail. I live nearby, but do not offer concierge services. I can arrange a Lock Box for easier access at odd times. I will leave a "guidebook" of instructions and things to do.
Other things to note
Every tenant has loved this space. A few have even replicated some parts, when they move on to their own, more permanent, "nests".
I seek clean, courteous, independent NON-Smokers with NO pets.
Do unto others, as you would want them to do unto you.
We hope guests will use their space tidy, use coasters, and wash dishes and other items used by guests, return them to their proper locations. Please leave linens on the bed, and please hang wet towels over the shower bar. We do a complete laundering and vacuuming between guests.

My husband and I have been together for over 30 years. We both work (he a Scientist, me in Real Estate). Our schedules limit time to provide concierge services, so we value thoughtful, independent guests who are good communicators. We will provide maps and a guide book to help you in your dining, shopping and exploration of the city. (When we travel, this is our preference.) We try to treat people as we would like to be treated.
Larry is more tech savvy, I am more likely to curl up with a book. We like people and have been hosting folks from foreign countries for many years. My husband travels for work, and he has visited former guests in Europe, (Germany) and Asia (China & Japan) and my daughter has stayed with the family of a young Italian who stayed with us. I stayed with a former guest, a Nun, in a convent,when I went to Paris.
